Coldplay has been working hard to drum up the noise for its new album, "Ghost Stories," from the Internet-broadcast iTunes Festival at South By Southwest in March to a recent performance on "Saturday Night Live."

Now, on the eve of "Ghost Stories' " release, the group is back on NBC at 7 p.m. ET Sunday, May 18, with "Coldplay: Ghost Stories," a one-hour special that blends performance footage with cinematic sequences show above, below and around the band as it plays songs from the album -- including the first single "Magic" -- as well as older hits such as "Clocks," "Viva La Vida" and "Paradise."

The special was directed by Paul Dugdale and, who also helmed the "Coldplay Live 2012" feature, and filmed during March in front of an audience of 800 in Los Angeles. A trailer for the show is streaming at www.coldplay.com.

"Ghost Stories" comes out on Monday, May 19. The British quartet plays that night in Los Angeles and has a handful of shows in the U.K., France and Japan but won't be touring in earnest until 2015.
